Jets to lean on CMart.

Postby Guttpuppy » Sat Aug 30, 2003 8:48 pm

Dave Hutchinson, Star Ledger

It's likely HC Edwards will lean on RB Curtis Martin even more than usual, at least until Testaverde gets in rhythm with the offense. And that could take as long as four weeks, OC Paul Hackett said. The Jets have a bye in Week 5.

yes, unfortunately the rest of the league knows about this as well, and will stack the line until Vinny shows he can get the job done.

I think C-Mart will do alot better than people think this year. I don't understand some biases that form against certain players if you look at things objectively.

I see alot of people writing about how certain players (Marshall for example) are going to make a great comeback this year "because he's healthy again". That sounds so frickin stupid. Wasn't he healthy last year too? While other players who are healthy (such as Martin, Taylor) have been really badmouthed for fantasy purposes. I know Taylor has an injury history but Martin does not. Yet he's viewed as an injury issue.

Isn't everyone who gets injured "healthy" to start the year? Both Martin and Faulk are equally healthy this year as they were last year. Both got hurt last year and both were healthy to start. I know all things being the same Marshall has much more fantasy value. But that aside, what's the crap about one guy being healthy and the other viewed as an injury case. I got Martin as a 3rd running back which I think is a steal.

The more they run the ball, the more touches Lamont Jordan will get. He may get a few extra carries since C-Mart is getting pretty old.

I don't think people are passing on Martin because he is an injury case. I think it's because he will have to carry the offense, and with everyone on the D focusing on him, I am just not sure that he can get it done.

But you're right, even before the Pennington injury, Martin was dropping in the rankings. A little of that has to do with the emerging Lamont Jordan, but I think a lot has to do wiht the fact that Martin is not a flashy player. He won't get those 152 yd, 2 TD games. He is a consistent player, but people like game breakers (Why else would Shaun Alexander be going so high?).

I could've sworn we've gone through this awhile ago when I posted other RB's ages,,,some who are a year older and some who are the same age as Curtis,,,.....is 30,,Faulk 30,,S.Davis 29 C.Dillon.,29,,and EVERYBODY'S FAVE Priest Holmes is 30 so enough of the "he's getting old" cuz they're all gettin' old if you don't think he is gonna produce then let it be but leave the damn getttin old excuse for when you feel stiff in the morning cuz you played a pickup game the day before.

hes a workhorse, but will only be able to take so much as teams stack the box against him and dare vinny to beat them through the air...this could mean alot more lamont jordan as well once c-mart starts wearing down, and herm is going to do whatever he can to keep martin healthy this season....

I'd have to agree with GZA here. Have you seen Vinny in preseason? :-P And you can't even use the preseason excuse either. He was horrible in the games before CPenn replaced him.

The guy's obviously finished. With that said, defenses will indeed key on CMart and dare Vinny to beat them which flat out WILL NOT happen. I think Azrael having CMart as a #3 back is great, he's a steal as a #3 but as a #2, I'll pass.

I think the real question at QB is how long until Jamie Martin takes over, and how successful he can be. By the looks of Vinny, the sooner Martin's in there, the better for the Jets.

I just avoided everything about them in my drafts this year.
